First step: Calm your mind. Its not too late.

Yes, some people have been revising from the beginning but if you approach this systematically and make the most of your time, you can still do well even in your mocks in January. If your predicted grades are 7-9 then you must have retained some knowledge of your courses. May I ask what options you picked and whether you have regular unit tests at school? Also what are your predicted grades based on?

I'm in year 13 😱
I did OCR comp sci.
I would have given you my maths notes but I stupidly lost them 😭
I loved those notes as well 😭

What I did for maths, is just put the stuff that I never remember down on an A4 piece of paper because there are some skills that you will always remember without revising (like algebraic fractions, basic geometry) and there are some that you just seem to forget. By putting the stuff you always forget down, you'll end up knowing it well whilst also having less notes to look over.
This makes it seem less daunting.
Doesn't work for everyone, but it worked for me 🙃

(You do Edexcel English?)

I didn't do Edexcel, I did AQA and so we probably did different texts. I don't know anyone who did Edexcel either.
Sorry 😅
